Very informative and necessary for a world we are living in today.


Before I go on, let me say right here that I do not mean to denigrate or otherwise downplay the seriousness of what happened to Somers, nor do I mean to cast doubt on the veracity of her story. Another reason I seriously question whether doctors were pushing hard for chemotherapy in a mere six days is because, if they truly thought she had such a massively widespread recurrence of her breast cancer, particularly an estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer, all treatment would be palliative.

In summary, I don’t think I’d recommend this book except to people who really want to explore all the various approaches, including very alternative, and are willing to look past the very biased language by Somers and some of the doctors towards conventional oncology.
